Dr. Frank Linton has been keeping honey bees on his deck in Fairfax for over 10 years. He also keeps honey bees in a glass observation hive in his house. Frank was introduced to honey bees by his grandfather, a Vermont beekeeper and dairy farmer, many years ago, and five years ago Frank became an EAS-certified Master Beekeeper. Frank has published one beekeeping book, hosts two beekeeping websites, The Beekeeper and Colony Monitoring, and has published more than 10 articles in beekeeping magazines. Recently retired from The MITRE Corporation, Frank has come to realize he still has a lot to learn when it comes to honey bees and beekeeping.
